Next Eclipse

Next Eclipse

Give it time. Give it some of our best time.
And I will drift out into your front yard like on any other dusk,
The winter air's edges sharp in a full moon's early light.

I will feel you come to join my quiet solitude
And slip your hands beneath the sheet I've wrapped up in
To hold me close, to ask what's on my mind.

I'll reminisce on how last year I'd slept this day away
While millions around the world gazed at this moon
And I'd dreamt only of how distant was my love.

We will whisper of shadows that measure the years
And of all that will never come between,
Then I will turn and kiss you as the moon goes dark again.
